This is the first Opera x.0 release that has been fully usable. A pleasant surprise.
Major plus points for me...
1. At last an installer that allows for a USB portable installation.
2. Extensions! How long has everybody been moaning to Opera... Read full review

I thought this would be crap. After all it's just transparent folders on your desktop right? Well kind of. But not quite.

This is so much better than 10.5x it's like using a different browser. This is much more like it.
Added bonus; they even cleaned up some bugs i reported. Still plenty are left, but usability is now back to what i expect from Opera.

10.60 is going to be sooo much better than 10.50. It's really what 10.50 should have been in the first place. Loads of bug fixes and it's actually usable now. Roll on 10.60..... Read full review
